    Looks like im getting some glare that I can't account for correcting. I need some C&C, specifically with eliminating this glare with and without the flash.

    This photo is straight from the d700, only minimized.

    The problem that I am seeing is on her face and hand - My screen shows a shine/glare that I'm not liking.

    Is it the color space or how I'm uploading the images from the camera?

    Settings:
    D700
    ISO 1000
    SB600 -1.0
    1/10
    Using 18-105VR @ f3.5

    Do you guys see at as much or is it normal?

    Also, Do you think its correctable in lightroom?

    Is it really that important?

    Just trying to figure out why this is so important more than anything.

    You get harsh light when someone sticks their hand in front of the flash. That's how it's going to be.

    I can see it on their face and other pics without flash.

    I am trying to determine if the glare is caused by me OR something graphically or visually related to my computer or lightroom process.

    I think you are thinking way too much about this. The glare was caused by her sticking her hand and the glass up by the light source.

    I think There is something wrong with your eyes.

    If anything, i'd be more concerned with the blown out highlight on his shirt.

    I don't know if you're being serious or not.

    The blown out highlights on his shirt just show there was harsh light present when the picture was taken. This same light is what you see on his nose.

    You may want to calibrate your monitor with some sort of calibration device. The guy's nose looks ok in the natural light picture.

    His shirt gets blown out because there are a lot of dark areas in the picture. If you are using matrix metering, the camera will look at the the scene, see all the dark areas and adjust the exposure by compensating for all the dark areas. The increase in exposure causes his shirt to get blown out. Matrix metering looks at the whole picture and bases the exposure on that. Sometimes the dynamic range of the total picture is too much for the sensor to handle. Most times it is ok.

    In a contrasty scene where you have really dark areas, like the background, and light areas like his shirt, spot metering or center weighted metering can help get the exposure right. Expose for his skin, and you should be ok.

    Learn to read your histogram on the fly, it will let you know if you are losing detail and if you are getting your exposure right.

    Also Active D Lighting can be helpful in contrasty scenes like that.
